ZURICH (Reuters) – A teenager unleashed a large-scale police operation after a restaurant owner mistook a toy he was carrying for a real gun.
A witness raised the alarm when he saw the 15-year-old, wearing a camouflage outfit and holding what appeared to be a rifle, running up and down the street in the southern German city of Lindau.
“Of course we had to go immediately,” a Lindau police officer told local media. According to media reports, several vehicles from the local police and also from the Federal Police were summoned to detain the teenager.
The boy, who was not identified, was found and detained with a toy made from Lego blocks and looking like a gun. The teenager was indicted, reported the Austrian news agency APA.
